Host Kortney Nordrum and guest Erica Salmon Byrne discuss Managers Hiring for Integrity, including:

  • What does hiring for integrity mean;
  • What does integrity look like (hint: not Bernie Madoff);
  • How hiring the right person saves you money (and time, and energy, and sleepless nights);
  • Reasons to (and not to) trust your gut;
  • Why hiring for culture is really important;
  • Who to blame in a crisis (and what that says about you);
  • Why managers don’t know how to manage (it has to do with being good at their jobs);
  • Who your employees trust and why;
  • How leadership plays into nature vs. nurture;
  • What makes a bunch of ivy-league graduates cheat; and
  • The power in the reason behind the rule.
